photo of demonstration at 1964 CORE national conference (1)

Description

"Members of the Congress of Racial Equality (C.O.R.E.), in a sit-in at the Hotel Muehlebach barber shop occupy all chairs on July 2, 1964 in Kansas City. Just after President Johnson signed the Civil Rights Bill in Washington, a C.O.R.E. member asked for, and was refused, service. Immediately a sit-in began with marching, singing and clapping of hands. With the announcement that the barber shop was closed, the marchers and sitters said they'd be back when the shop opens in the morning. "
